      Yes, the ringing is tinnitus. But you may have a mild case of temporary tinnitus. So hopefully it will go away for good. So don't worry too much. Even if it continues, you should be able to habituate to it if you don't worry about it. All the best.

      every ear noise is called "Tinnitus" because that's just the name for ringing in the ear. So yes, what you are experiencing is Tinnitus unfortunately. But if it is related to eustachian tube problems or something like that, it might go away especially as you already had phases where it went away. If you haven't been to an ENT/audiologist yet, you should still go and get your hearing tested.

      Unfortunately that no one can tell! For many people it goes away and is only temporary and for many other people it stays. Let's just hope for the best in your case, it hasn't been long for you... If it doesn't go away you will habituate soon and probably won't even notice the ringing so either way you will probably be fine.
